A good beginning to the week

I keep gushing about it, but I can't help it. I absolutely lubs my job. The people here continue to rock my socks. Yesterday, one of the attorneys gave me a pile of Christmas prezzies. I came in to find a stack of wrapped packages and a card on my desk. I'm absolutely over-the-moon touched by the gesture.

My old day job had a select-a-gift setup where employees got a catalog wherein we could choose something for our holiday gift. While nice and appreciated, it was also sterile and sucked the charm and joy out of the gift tradition, replacing it with corporate efficiency.

   

Writing Stuff

The critiques are coming in for "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest etc." And they're mixed. While most critters enjoyed it, some folks found it confusing and would like more world explanation, one critter thought I was a tad too ham-fisted with my explaining parts, and then there were also the critters who totally got it: story, theme, and message. Urk. Rewrite pondering.


Received:
- The editor of OSC's IGMS liked my rewrite and wants to publish "Beauty's Folly." Woot! It's not slated for the January issue but the one after that, #5, due out in April/May of next year. But that's all good 'cause he said he (probably) wants to use it as the cover story!
- Payment for my December Writing for Young Readers column, and also an unexpected surprise, a holiday bonus from the editor in the form of an Amazon gift certificate. *squee!*
- Also, an 89-day pass from the Holy Horrors anthology and a 123-day "we were holding this but . . . " from Heliotrope.


Editing:
- Couple editing passes on "Sinner, Baker, Fabulist, Priest etc."
